Discussion for Colossians 3

    Colossians 3:3 "For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God." THE QUESTION AS BELIEVERS WE MUST ASK OURSELF IS OUR LIFE REALLY HIDDEN IN CHRIST??? MY MY MY! TO FOLLOW CHRIST IS TO FOLLOW HIS WAYS AND THE TRUTH SO WHEN HE COMES WE WILL BE READY! Colossians 3:4 "When CHRIST, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." BEING A BELIEVER IS MORE THAN GOING

    I love this chapter, i just love the fact that it made me to be a hard-worker because it says whatever i do i must do it as for the Lord and it continue to say there is no reward on earth but my reward comes from above. Ho blessing is it to be rewarded by the Almighty God. Amen
